  1. Thanks EEyore, It was very kind of you to send me a birthday wish. I really appreciated it, It's been a rough day.

  2. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  3. What A Welcome Surprise!

    Hi, I am a newly diagnosed celiac with DC. Can you tell me more about neuro celiac? I'm thinking I may have this type. Thanks in Advance, Annie
  4. Does anyone have any tips for alleviating any of these symptoms after being glutened? I find that if I drink organic oj for the vitamin c with magnesium carbonate to help relax, take bifido pro biotics to get my bacteria growing and eat organic blueberries for the antioxidants, it calms the response. It doesn't make it go away, but it becomes more tolerable. I get very debilitated from the gluten, with right shoulder pain and arm pain, my arm almost seems to go out of place, and just hang. The right low back pain is very intense, and I cannot stand up straight without incredible pain. The back of my head feels like it is caving in, and sometimes I have trouble getting words out. I can wake up in the night with all of this going on at once, along with intense cramping and tingling in my legs. I will be in a fetal position unable to straighten my legs, and grabbing my hair and pulling on it. Thank you for this site. I finally feel that I am not alone. Annie
  5. Wow!! I have been getting incredible right shoulder pain, and almost a paralysis of my arm. It's very debilitating. I also get low back pain which I have had for years and always thought it was due to deterioration of discs, according to many doctors and therapists. But I have learned recently since working on being gluten free that it is the gluten and maybe dairy. Annie
  6. Hooray! You just made my Day. "I'm a Pepper, You're a Pepper............. Annie
  7. I am new to this forum, this is my first post. I was just diagnosed with dermatitis Herpetiformis today by a new internist that I saw. Even before he saw the DH, he felt I was at high risk for celiac . I basically diagnosed myself after recent research and many misdiagnosis by a number of doctors. I have been through a 2 year nightmare fighting severe symptoms everyday. They also did the blood test today, and are setting up an appt with the gastroenterologist for next week. I thought I could go back to being gluetin free, but after reading your post I guess not yet. This forum has been sooo helpful. I would not have been nearly as well prepared for this appt if not for this site. Thanks for all the info. Annie
